An attorney for Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former
lawyer who pleaded guilty to eight federal
crimes including bank fraud, is raising money for Cohen’s
defense. 

Lanny Davis set up
a GoFundMe campaign
, and it gained huge traction in the first
24 hours, raising over $125,000 in that period. 

More than 2,000 donors, contributing anywhere from $5
to $1,000, have poured money into Cohen’s “Truth
Fund.”

“Michael decided to put his family and his country first,”
the page description reads. “

Now Michael needs your
financial help — to pay his legal fees.”

“The Michael Cohen Truth Fund is a transparent trust account,
with all donations going to help Michael Cohen and his family as
he goes forward on his journey to tell the truth about Donald
Trump.”

“We ask everybody who is interested in Michael being able to tell
the truth to help him out,” Davis said.

Many of the donors who pledged money are listed as anonymous.
Some donations were made in the names of Melania Trump, Russian
President Vladimir Putin, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Stormy Daniels,
and “Hilary Clinton’s left hook.”

A $50,000 donation initially credited to NASCAR CEO Brian France
and his wife, Amy, briefly appeared on the GoFundMe page.

marked as anonymous

2016.
